THE SHRIEKS Release Dazzling Visual Music Video for “Synaptic Free Zone”

Banner

Alternative Rock Band THE SHRIEKS has released the visually intense music video for their politically charged single, “Synaptic Free Zone,” off of their April released LP, Toxygen.

Player

“‘Synaptic Free Zone’ is a fun song about something that is not so fun.

The reality that we are all sheep following a blind destiny ordained by giant corporations that manipulate and orient us in ways that suit their business model, which is..’Don’t question, just follow, consume, and continue to be just a small number in their algorithm of pawns and deception’.

The Synapse is a junction between two nerve cells, consisting of a minute gap across which impulses pass by diffusion of a neurotransmitter. If we’re not thinking for ourselves we are in essence ‘Synaptic Free’.” – Luis Accorsi

The Shrieks is Luis Accorsi (aka Tito Lembi) based out of Brooklyn. Luis and his fantastically talented friends are the synthesis of pure, unadulterated, meaningful protest rock. Toxygen is relevant to our times and original, incredible music. It takes us further into being a protest band, but not all our music has to do with the state of the world. It has to do with the state of us as humans: in love, distraught, downtrodden, happy. Our tracks are about never being apathetic. We make our feelings known, and what comes from the heart, gets to the heart.

VERSUS ME Release Official Music Video for “Far Behind”

VSME - Contiunous Album Cover

Wisconsin based Metalcore band VERSUS ME has released the official music video for “Far Behind,” the first single off of their upcoming LP, CONTINUOUS, due out 9/13/2019.

Player

Continuous has been a long time in the making. This album is a combination of all the styles that this band is capable of achieving. We feel like we really touched on a lot of different elements satisfying for Versus Me fans, yet inviting for new ones. Our first single, “Far Behind” is fast and sets the pace for the album. Riffs and catchy choruses…..what more would you want to kick off a record?! – James (Vocals)

Band Promo

VERSUS ME, from Janesville, Wisconsin is a band for today’s subcultural and mainstream pop crowds alike. They have crafted a sophomore album featuring the type of crowd-ready anthems heard in stadiums on the One Direction/5 Seconds Of Summer world tour, while simultaneously harnessing the heaviness and earnest delivery found each year on the Warped Tour’s main stage and in the pages of Alternative PressRocksoundKerrang!

Even as Versus Me take aim for mainstream chart success, arena headlining shows and the attention of the diehard fans who drive the underground scene, the band’s number one goal remains simple. Versus Me wants nothing less than positivity, communication and connection with their audience. They want to show that their music, and all good music, can help people with life toughest trials and hardships. Versus Me yearn to connect with every person they can, whether to talk about music, or to learn about where people are coming from and who they are.

Packing an arsenal of melodies, hooks, breakdowns, electro fueled bounce and deep grooves, Versus Me’s message of uplifting goodwill is about to make itself heard loud and proud – from the stage, from cars, speakers, headphones and anywhere possible.

RIG TIME! Releases Official Music Video for “No Faith”

NO FAITH SINGLE ARTWORK

Wisconsin based Hardcore Metal Band RIG TIME! has released the official music video for their new single, “NO FAITH.”

Player

“’NO FAITH’ is a bleak declaration about giving up and a satirical response encouraging one to forgo their community. The lyrics declare “You’ll never miss what you never loved” to invoke inner dialogue, asking oneself if they truly love the setting they are a part of .“No faith in the future, No reason to survive” is a blunt submission to ponder if what the effort you offer is worth. The song is in the eye of the beholder, to offer two paths and let the individual decide what matters to them.” – RIG TIME!

RIG TIME! is an angry, caustic and vehemently heavy force based in La Crosse, WI. The band has performed 300+ shows, in 39 states and counting, since 2015. Holding true to the idea of “All Ages Or Nothing” the band has relentlessly toured across the US performing at only all ages events and resonating their substantial live sound while stressing the message that live music is for all. Deeply rooted in the DIY attitude, RIG TIME! is a determined and passionate ensemble with strong work ethic and a vital purpose.

Their recent full length album War was released on October 20, 2017 via Innerstrength Records, following the self released full-length Sick of It (2016) and two EP’s (2014’s Awful and 2015’s Devout). Featuring a sound that is the audio equivalent of a tank column entering a besieged city, the crunch and clangor of War is a game-changer. Forged in the fires of hardcore, sludge, and powerviolence, War epitomizes RIG TIME!‘s scorched-earth tactics and demonstrates the natural chemistry of the band.

Vocalist/Drummer, Bryan W. Fleming provides intensity and indignant passion to a wave of sullen and unrelenting baritone guitar riffs, forcefully delivered by Rebecca Fleming with massive low end impact and ferocity.

TESTAROSSA Releases Official Music Video for “Rock-N-Roll”

IMG 3853

Charlotte, NC Hard Rock Band TESTAROSSA has released the official music video for their newest single, “Rock-N-Roll.” Originally premiered on Ghostcult Magazine, “Rock-N-Roll” is available to download / stream via The Label Group / INgrooves.

Player

“In the age of autotuned vocals, poorly written songs, and detuned guitars, one band emerges from the ashes. With nothing to prove and no one to impress, they set out on a collision course with destiny. Full of piss and vinegar, but not enough sense to pour it out of their boots, they released quite possibly the best debut single ever – Mother Lover feat. Danny Worsnop. The opportunities would continue to come their way. The haters and doubters multiplied. The crowd sizes increased proportionally to their egos. With the world held captivated, in awe of their amazing sense of melody and avant-garde style, they decided to give the masses what they really wanted. All the skill in the world, the looks, the bodies, the lackluster personalities, and inflated senses of self-worth were combined to make the best product any band could dream of producing. Now that band – Testarossa – is ready to share the joys of musical perfection. Executed flawlessly with unparalleled panache, Testarossa presents their newest chart-topping single “Rock-N-Roll.” Rock-N-Roll is back and you have no one else to thank except Testarossa. You are welcome. It’ll change your life.” – TESTAROSSA

Testarossa is a hard rock party band. We bring five guitars to the show and only play two, just because it looks cool. Our stage show will get the place shaking like like a bad ball joint on your ’89 Camaro. We write simple, catchy songs that will have you singing along. With loud, flamboyant guitars, thundering drums, thumping bass, and bourbon and pipe tobacco tinged vocals– if our music doesn’t make you wanna have a good time, you probably weren’t gonna have one anyway. So come on out and see us for a visual and audio induced euphoria that will leave you craving more.
